I’m an Equine McTimoney and Massage therapist working in Essex and surrounding counties. My passion for horses led me to studying for a BSc in Equine Science at Writtle College from 2005-08. The course covered a wide range of subject areas from Nutrition, to Behaviour, Exercise Physiology to Complementary Therapies. Here I discovered my interest in Complementary Therapies, after writing my dissertation on ‘The effect of McTimoney Therapy on Atlas Rotation in the Riding Horse’ and having my horse treated by a McTimoney therapist I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life.
Whilst at Writtle, I also studied for my BHS stages one and two. I followed this up with an Equine Massage Course through Equine Energy, gaining the title of Equine Body Worker. I then went on to study for an MSc in Animal Spinal Manipulation through the McTimoney College; writing a dissertation entitled ‘The effect of Spinal Manipulation on MNT values in the Equine Neck.’ I have since qualified in Equine Kinesiology Sports Taping.
I am now a fully insured practitioner with McTimoney being widely recognised by most major insurance companies as a complimentary therapy. I am qualified to treat all animals, however the real passion and focus of my work is horses.
